SUNNYVALE, Calif., Aug. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Batteroo Inc., an innovator of intelligent voltage management and delivery systems, today announced that its electronic design has been verified feasible for manufacturing by Arrow Electronics.
Battery ReBoost brings together the peak performance of alkaline batteries with the reusability and sustainability of rechargeables. The Batteroo ReBoost SmartSleeves and Batteroo ReBoost SmartShells have been reviewed as part of the Arrow Certification Program to verify that they are feasible for manufacturing, providing third-party validation to supporters on Indiegogo that they can back the crowdfunding campaign with confidence.
"We are working with one of the most prestigious companies, Arrow Electronics, as part of their Certification Program, in partnership with Indiegogo, to showcase that the design of our Batteroo ReBoost SmartSleeves and SmartShells are feasible for manufacturing," said Batteroo cofounder Bob Roohparvar Ph.D. "This certification assures campaign supporters that they will soon be able to achieve more power, longer life and the ability to use rechargeables in any device when deploying Batteroo ReBoost. Consumers won't have to settle for less performance and need to continually purchase disposable batteries when there is revolutionary technology available that will save them money and reduce the amount of toxic materials polluting our landfills."
ReBoost SmartSleeve is a microthin sleeve that easily fits over rechargeable batteries to bring together the reusability and sustainability benefits of rechargeables with the peak performance capability of alkaline batteries. The ReBoost SmartSleeve boosts voltage to 1.5 volts so rechargeable batteries can now operate in all alkaline-only applications. Batteroo's microchip technology continuously manages voltage discharge over the duration of the battery's charge to ensure devices maintain an optimal and more consistent performance over a longer time period. A built-in automatic shut-off circuit prevents devices from discharging below the rechargeable battery's recommended operating conditions to avoid damage to the rechargeable battery itself and eliminates the risk of toxic chemical leaks, which could lead to fire.
Batteroo ReBoost SmartShell allows consumers to use AA/AAA rechargeable batteries in C/D alkaline-only devices, eliminating the need to buy expensive single-use batteries again. Four AAA rechargeable batteries can be used in place of C batteries while D batteries can be replaced by three AA rechargeables. Additionally, the AA SmartShell can be used with a single AAA rechargeable battery to achieve optimal performance and device compatibility in tight-fitting battery compartments. Using Batteroo ReBoost SmartShells not only saves money and waste from buying disposable batteries but devices are better able to maintain optimal performance over a longer period of time.
